I am excited to share my story and hope it will inspire you to take the right action and help you clear your debt. In 2009 I shared a townhouse with a roommate, and below is the list of my monthly bills back then:
Rent plus house bills, i.e., electricity, water, and gas, were $2000 a month shared with a roommate.
Car loan monthly payments of $500
Car-related expenses, including gas and car insurance, $500
Food and miscellaneous $500
Credit card minimum monthly payment of $100
Line of credit minimum monthly payment $100
The two-year pilot program provides access to low-cost financing to help commercial building owners in Edmonton make a minimum of three energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades to their buildings.
There is up to $8.45 million available in financing and rebates which will fund up to 17 major upgrade projects. Upgrades financed by the Commercial CEIP are repaid through property taxes over a maximum 20-year period. Should a building be sold the financing obligation transfers through the property taxes to the new owner.
The CEIP aims to advance efforts to improve environmental resiliency as part of Edmonton’s Community Energy Transition Strategy and Action Plan.
Commercial pre-qualification forms will be available beginning at 10 a.m. June 7 and based on the uptake from the residential program, spots are expected to fill up fast. Owners can find out more at myCEIP.ca/Edmonton-Commercial.
He had strong words for the provincial government:
“We need our provincial government to step up because tackling houselessness, mental health, addictions and trauma is their responsibility. They need to show up for our most vulnerable. People’s human dignity and our economic recovery depends on it”.
He highlighted the inequities Edmonton has suffered under the UCP government:
“From 2007 to 2021, Edmonton has received $1.1B less compared to Calgary under the MSI and Basic Municipal Transportation funding”.
“Edmonton is a regional hub for social services. We carry a disproportionate burden providing servicing to Alberta’s most vulnerable for which we receive no recognition or financial support”.
“Every year, Edmonton loses $14M in tax revenue because our provincial government is not paying its fair share of property taxes on the buildings they occupy.”
“In the past 3 years, our world-renowned University of Alberta has faced the largest budget cuts of any post-secondary in the province. Now totaling $222 million, stifling innovation and hurting students”.
A just transition refers to the transition from the dominant economy to one that centers on place-based, ecologically resilient, socially equitable, deeply democratic approaches to establishing mutually beneficial relationships. Consequently, understanding the economy as a changeable model is key to envisioning new ways of interacting with the world.

Every month, for LCCMedia, Mary Thomas hosts a panel around issues going on in the community. Business Leaders were joined in an indepth conversation about doing business during and after the pandemic in the August Panel. Even though each business is different and unique, every business left the pandemic either better or worse.
This panel discussion was very robust because the business leaders came to it from very different but relevant perspectives. The panelists were Deborah Cox, the CEO of Microbusiness, Yinka Oladele, the first black owner of a UPS store in Calgary and Sharon Njobo, the CEO of thefirestarter.ca.
